New ONSW Board

At the ONSW AGM this long weekend Mike Ridley-Smith (photo on left, a member of GO) stepped down from his role on the ONSW Board for over 4 years as a Director and looking after the Marketing portfolio.  A big thank you to Mike for his long service and for offering his expertise learnt in the corporate wold of marketing. Mike was the only representative from Garingal on the Board over this time, which is something we should address because we are the largest club in NSW and could look to greater representation.

Thankfully Jamie Kennedy (photo on right) has stepped up to the plate to take a position as Director on the Board of ONSW.  Good on you Jamie!  With Jamie also on the Garingal Committee, we look forward to good connections between GO and ONSW.

The new President is Robyn Pallas from Central Coast Orienteers, and the new Secretary is Mary-Jane Mahoney from Uringa: We welcome them aboard.  Whilst it is nice to see a better spread of clubs represented at executive level, I do want to note our sincere thanks to the outgoing executives Greg Barbour (President), Rob Spry (Secretary) and Mark Shingler (Finance Director).  Their jobs are not easy.  With 11 clubs in NSW for most of their period of service, half regional and half in Sydney, it is quite difficult to deliver equitable service.  To their credit, the Annual Report (available here) indicates an amazing array of activities that the ONSW has either delivered from the ONSW Office, or facilitated being rolled out across the clubs in NSW.  The whole Board deserves a big clap and our thanks for keeping our sport healthy and growing in numbers due to their diligence and professional approach to what in the scheme of things is a very small and relatively unknown sport.
